A British expression used to indicate that something has gone horribly wrong with a person's plans, most commonly in the phrase "It's all gone pear shaped." The origin is unclear, but one theory says that it is RAF slang relating to the difficulty of performing aerobatic loops, which were described as "pear shaped" if executed imperfectly.
"Howard Dean must have thought he was a shoo-in for the Democratic presidential nomination, but somehow in the primaries it all went pear shaped."
